"White Freight Liner Blues" as written by and Townes Van Zandt....
I'm goin' out on the highway
Listen to them big trucks whine
I'm goin' out on the highway
Listen to them big trucks whine

White freight liner
Won't you steal away my mind?
Ah, New Mexico ain't bad, Lord
And the people there, they treat you kind
And the people there, they treat you kind

Well, it's bad news from Houston
Half my friends are dying
Well, it's bad news from Houston
Half my friends are dying

Ah, Lord, I'm gonna ramble
'Til I get back to where I came
Ah, Lord, I'm gonna ramble
'Til I get back to where I came

I'm goin' out on the highway
Listen to them big trucks whine
I'm goin' out on the highway
Listen to them big trucks whine

    General CommentI love this song. But I have problems to understand it completely.

    New Mexico? Half of my friends are dying in Houston?

    Do anyone understand that?

    Thanks for information!

    General CommentThe white freight liner
    is and allegory for drugs
    like cocaine.

    "white freight liner,
    won't you steal away my mind."

    Its probably also about being on the road, my friend.
